Computer Processing Methods for Nuclear Medicine Images

  title={Computer Processing Methods for Nuclear Medicine Images},
  author={Tracy L. Faber and Russell D. Folks},
Objective: This review is a discussion of computer processing methods for modern nuclear medicine images. Methods: Basic image processing and quantification techniques are described, and their application to specific nuclear medicine studies is presented. Generation and use of regions of interest, time-activity curves, tomographic reconstruction and oblique reformatting are all addressed, as well as common nuclear medicine protocols for processing multiple gated blood pool studies, first-pass… CONTINUE READING
